Opinion: Why Arsenal Should Not Fear The Month Of October As Was The Case Earlier


Arsenal are in scintillating form. After 8 games, they have convincingly won 7 of them. The Gunners have proved wrong critics who said they were going to struggle in some of the games they have won. For instance against Brentford(who bullied them last season), Crystal Palace, and Tottenham the Gooner doubting thomases were proved wrong.

In June when premier league fixtures were released, most Arsenal fans marked October as their first difficult campaign in the 2022/23 EPL season. So the Gunners had to start strongly against the lesser sides so that the anticipated stumble in October doesn't really affect them much. At the time,back to back games against Tottenham, Liverpool, and Manchester City sent shivers down the Gooner fan fraternity.

But now that is not the case as Mikel Arteta's men are in control. First off, Arsenal thrashed Tottenham 3-1 in a game they were dominant. Next will be Liverpool who are struggling and as a result occupy 9th place. After Liverpool,the Gunners were supposed to play Manchester City but the game was rescheduled due to queen Elizabeth's passing. After facing the Reds at the Emirates stadium, Arsenal will play Leeds away, Southampton at home, Nottingham Forest at home and that will mark the end of their jam packed October. Note that I have only mentioned EPL matches excluding Europa and Carabao fixtures. Nonetheless, the Gunners are buzzing with confidence and appear to fear no one now.
